    Why is America Great?

    The Chinese Academy of Social Sciences of the People's Republic of China concluded in 2002:

    One of the things we [the Chinese Academy] were asked to look into was what accounted for the success, in fact, the pre-eminence of the West all over the world. We studied everything we could from the historical, political, economic, and cultural perspective. At first, we thought it was because you had more powerful guns than we had. Then we thought it was because you had the best political system. Next we focused on your economic system. But in the past twenty years, we have realized that the heart of your culture is your religion: Christianity. That is why the West has been so powerful. The Christian moral foundation of social and cultural life was what made possible the emergence of capitalism and then the successful transition to democratic politics. We don't have any doubt about this.

    Now I wonder why it is that atheists/leftists/Democrats/liberals consistently ask for references to anything they do not like, but never ever seem to ask for references from a fellow atheist/leftist/Democrat/liberal.
    Why is that?

    Congratulations on your remarkable perceptivity.
    Indeed, my first step in converting the billion people of China to Christianity is to post this quote here, on scam.com

    The rest will all follow quite naturally, as you so presciently envision.

    Your comments have all the credibility of a Democrat.

    I do not purchase any 'newspaper' in a check out line, and I resent your liberal Double Lie, viz. that you are intellectually superior to everyone who does not agree with your dogma, and therefore you must be right. This Double Lie is as inaccurate as it is overused.

    Please cite several of your recent posts where you have requested references from atheists/liberals/Democrats/Bush-haters.

    If it quacks like a duck, and walks like a duck, and looks like a duck, it might be a Libertarian. Ya just never know...

    Re: Why is America Great?

    i was thinking about this today as i have seen a lot of hardships happen to those that could easily be helped back to a decent life with no such help in sight, because they dont have any connections relevant to the private capital system!?and the very fact that they are half-way succeeding actually prevents them from receiving any public help!? it seems the no excuses system of capitalistic PROFITABILITY has succeeded in dominating the american landscape like some SICKLY PALL!? and indeed, for THAT to change, it would likely would require a complete economic COLLAPSE!? unfortunately, that would also likely result in some kind of DICTATORSHIP replacing it!? so we are apparently stuck with this WELL DRESSED UP version of the reich style concentration camps!? and outside of these camps is another whole elitist lifestyle untouched by the goings on within!? you can see this same scenario in the hollywood dream!? if you make it, you live like a king!? if you miss, its tumble down to that miserable day job camp, serving the masses like a slave for no just compensation!? : :spin2:
